Ski tour to Mount Einachtspitze

The 2,305 m high Einachtspitze in the Val Ridanna valley is a very popular destination for ski mountaineers

Starting point for our ski tour to Mt. Einachtspitze in the Stubai Alps is the hamlet Ento (Entholz) in the Val Ridanna valley, where we leave our car at the parking space near the ski lift at 1,362 m a.s.l. We hike up to the top of the ski slope before we follow the forest road which leads us directly into the forest. The following 250 m of altitude are quite steep and exhausting. Having crossed the forest, however, we finally reach the beautiful alpine pastures around the Schneider Mountain Hut.

We can see the wonderful north slopes of fresh powder snow, down in the valley there's Ridanna. We continue our tour heading towards South and cross a rather steep channel at the foot of Mt. Einachtspitze before we reach its 2,305 m high peak and small summit cross hiking along the mountain ridge. From here, we enjoy a breathtaking view of the Stubai Alps with its two highest peaks, Mt. Tallone Grande and Mt. Punta Alta. Finally, we descend on our skis on the ascent route.

While the broad slopes in the upper section provide very nice skiing, the section through the forest is less pleasant. This is a very popular ski mountaineering route, offering very beautiful views of the surrounding mountain panorama. While the forest section is quite steep and challenging, the upper section doesn't present any difficulties. Moderate, forest section steep and more challenging, upper section without any skiing or alpine technical difficulties!
